I stayed comfortably and cleanly.”

Ah.. Is it so cheap because of Corona.. I used the club room but couldn't use anything.. Room service is not available now.. The lounge is closed so I used the free drinks in the fridge.. I didn't have breakfast because it was replaced with a set menu.. I didn't even have the dinner buffet.. Haha, I bought a sake from the place across the street and packed food from the cafe on the first floor to eat in the room. I saw on the way that they deliver, but I guess you have to pick it up on the first floor...

Great!”

I stayed at this hotel for a conference when I was in Korea with my company, and this time I stayed here as an accommodation. The hotel is very good value for money and the location is great, so I plan to stay at this hotel again when I go to Korea next time. Personally, I don't think the interior is too old, and I was very surprised that the staff were so friendly. Thank you very much, I will only use this hotel.

A hotel I want to visit again”

First of all, I checked in last weekend after Christmas. The staff at the front desk were friendly, and when I called for a room service late at night because my phone charger was broken, they brought it to me right away. The location is good and the atmosphere of the accommodation is also nice, so if I have the chance, I would like to visit again!
